AFL Top 100: Big Game of Danger?

A new name could be added to the AFL Top 100 Game Player list this weekend after Patrick Dangerfield passed the fitness test and signed for the Cats against his old club Adelaide at GMHBA Stadium on Saturday.

Currently under an injury cloud, Dangerfield will play his 294th AFL game and join former champion Keith Gregg (North Melbourne) and Jack ‘Skinny’ Titus (Richmond) in the 100th hot seat.

He will be the ninth current player to make the list, along with two current teammates, Joel Selwood and Tom Hawkins.

He is already on the list of elite top 100 games and goals in his two league clubs: Adelaide, 26th and 14th and Geelong, 88th and 52nd.

Dangerfield will undoubtedly rise to the top of the AFL game list if fitness and form do not abandon its 32-year-old body.

However, it is unlikely that he will have the rare honor of being the AFL top 100 goal scorer.

Titus and Greg are the only two players on the list who have not reached 300 games.

Before three games, Lenny Hayes (St. Kilda) and Wayne Campbell had 297 games, and three more games ahead of the 88th-ranked ten players who finished their careers in just 300 games.

Jack Titus had a remarkable career in Richmond, scoring 970 goals – the most by any of Richmond’s players – a career that began in 1926 and ended in 1943.

He joined Richmond from Castleman and Burnley and twisted and turned like an eagle.

He had a beautiful lead and won the league goal kicking in 1940, surpassing 80 goals four times, including his best 100 goals.

He has played in six Grand Finals for two Premierships. He held the league record for most drawn games (204) until he was passed by Melbourne’s Jim Steins in 1996.

In the span of 13 years he has won twice the best and most beautiful.

Keith Gregg was a red-haired, pale-skinned winger from Brunswick who won two consecutive Brownlow medals in 1973 and 1974, but strangely never won the Kangaroos’ best and most beautiful medal in any year.

He won it in 1980 and was a key member of the first premiership in North Melbourne in 1975.

Undoubtedly, nine current top 100 game players will welcome ‘Danger’ in the elite group of varied champions.

Round 11 will not see too much movement in the AFL’s list of top 100 games, with Lance ‘Buddy’ joining the Franklin Barry Round and John Nichols’ list.

Meanwhile, Tom Hawkins will rise to the group of Terry Dannyhar, Tony Shaw, James Kelly and Roger Meret in Game 313.

Round 11 – Half of the home and away games to be played by each club – will begin with an important game between the Swans and Tigers on Friday night.

The game in Sydney will have a big impact on which half of the top eight of the two teams will play, where losing the Gold Coast-Hawthorne game at Darwin’s TIO Stadium on Saturday night will give them their dream of a final. Footy in the 2022 season.

The two teams are currently on the 12th and 13th stairs with a one percent difference.

Most other games have a clear choice but – as we see every weekend – there will be catastrophes that support the theory that gaps between clubs are shrinking.
